Top Five Foods for Transfats

Mon, 12 Dec 2011

Transfat is the name for unsaturated fat containing E-isomer fatty acids.

Transfats heighten the risk of coronary heart disease. Health authorities across the world suggest that consumption of trans fat needs to be reduced in our diets.

Hence, most food manufacturers and fast-food chains have eliminated the use of trans fats or decreased their use.

However, it is still found in many foods which are in our diets .

French fries have a high content of trans fats as has fried chicken when you are eating out.

Ice cream too contains a lot of trans fats.

Pies and pie crusts are high in trans fats. Certain fruit pies contain between 2 and 4.5 grams of trans fat per serving. Most vegetable pie crust contain 1.5 grams of trans fat per serving.

Crisps often also contain trans fats, which is another form of food to avoid.
